In response to Re: Below Ground Trap Under Toilet
I'm probably incorrect. Am I correct in thinking that the clog is not in the toilet if I fully insert the snake before I reach the clog in both toilets? If so, would changing to a toilet with a 3" flush valve reduce clogging?

: You may not be describing it properly, but if you are the implication is that the toilets go to that trap. If so, then there is a good possibility that they are double trapped and should not flush at all. Your diagnosis, however, could be incorrect and you need a professional to determine what the problem is. You could have a pipe or piece of board in the main pipe which is catching paper, etc.

: : There seems to be a trap in the concrete slab below our Master Bath and Guest toilets. I can just reach it when the snake is fully inserted and can usually clear the clog. Will replacing the toilet installed in 1993 reduce or eliminate clogs or do you think something is stuck in the traps?
